Sibling Rivalry

Mason and Bella remind me of me and my sister when we were younger. For example, Mason has several toys outside. He only really plays with one toy now ( a Mr. Potato head from a Mcdonalds HappyMeal). The other day I took Bella outside to play with Mason and she headed straight for Red the Monkey. He started getting jealous and went and started playing with his toy. He thought well even if I don't want it you can't have it because it's MINE! He has become better though. He is such a good boy to let her drink from his water bowl and he even let her play with his rope toy this morning. I hope they get even better and become the best of friends!

Meet Bella

Meet Bella. She is the newest addition to the Busby household. We adopted her from the vet school and she is just the cutest thing...with razor sharp teeth. We brought her home yesterday and she was pretty shy at first. She slept in my lap on the way home. We took her in PetCo and bought her a toy and ran into Target to get her food. She had a few accidents when we got home. I'm trying to teach her that outside is the place to potty and I have been praising her when she does this outside. She doesn't seem to know what the puppy pad is yet. This makes me think back to Mason's puppy days. Any advice on potty training? We introduced her to her big brother yesterday afternoon...both on leashes of course. Mason did pretty well. A lot of sniffing went on. We limited their time and I made sure to spend a lot of time praising Mason and giving him treats. I don't want him to feel left out. Overall she did pretty good on her first night. She slept through the night....and she loves socks, especially when they are on your feet. We got her a rope toy to hopefully fulfill this chewing urge. I think she is a keeper. Any other advice on the best way to train a puppy would be appreciated. Here are a few pics of the sweet girl....

The Wonderful World of Harry Potter

So last week I was introduced to the wonderful world of Harry Potter. I started watching the first movie last week and went to see the 6th movie last night. I didn't know what I had been missing. Amy turns 30 tomorrow and she wanted me to have watched all the movies by her birthday. Well I have fullfilled her wish. She told me in the past that I would love the movies but I just never watched them. I didn't know what all the craze had been for the last years....but now I know. I have decided to read all of the books now and then rewatch the movies when I know a lot more of what's going on. Amy has been a big help in Harry Potter knowledge and details. So happy birthday Amy (even though it is tomorrow.

Happy 4th of July!

We had a great 4th! Saturday morning we got up early and headed to Pratville. Lee's parents best friends daughter lives there and her daughter turned 10 yesterday. They made all this great food complete with a red velvet cream cheese birthday cake. So yummy! After that we went to Tallasse to Aunt Donna's where we swam, played horshoes (i'm horrible...but it was my first time. The first time I threw it straight up in the air), and ate yet another delicious meal. At 9:00 we all headed to watch the fireworks that someone puts on themselves at their house. It was so pretty! We didn't stay for the whole thing thought. At 10:30 Lee and I were about to fall asleep, so we headed home and slept late this morning. I hope everyone had a great 4th too!
